Since it is the start of wedding season, I figured a post about etching glass items for weddings should be discussed. You might want to refer back to my post on my thoughts of the possible demand of etching gifts here which included estimated potential for the wedding market.
I also was digging through some past photos of small projects I did and want to show these to give you some ideas. They aren’t anything special and a friend wanted just basic mugs etched for the wedding party, but it may help.
Basically, I etched personalized mugs for the whole wedding party. The bride and groom got their names on one side and the date etched on the other. The best man and maid of honour were etched with the date underneath and their initials on the opposite. Then the rest of the brides maids and groomsmen had their initial on a side and the words “Keep Calm And Drink On” on the opposite. This was all at the request of my friend for the wedding party.
For these mugs, I etched everything with the sandblasting process. For the bride, groom, lady of honour and best man, I made them extra special by etching them much deeper than the rest. These thick beer mugs allow you to etch fairly deep and it looks so much more special.
Of course, you can etch these type of glass with the cream process or light sandblasting. Many people use these wedding designs such as the Just Married stencils, the Mr & Mrs wedding stencils, the Wedding, Engagement, Bridal Shower stencils or these Bride & Groom stencils.
You can see some of the set that was done below. I hope this gives you some ideas to etch which will be cherished.
